Skeleton Sizes

In the comments of my last post, Jay asked “How do the skeles scale with GW skeles?”

I figured I’d photograph three manufacturers so everyone could see for themselves.

Monolith (Conan) / Games Workshop / Mantic



Gorechosen Kore Hammerskull

I picked up Gorechosen last year for a bunch of reasons.

-I had a friend who bought it and wanted to play.

-I needed a figure for my Secret Santa submission. (I’ll post it a bit later)

-It’s a great beer & pretzels game.

-I can use all the figures in Warhammer Quest Silver Tower.

With all that motivation, I got painting. The first gladiator I painted was for the shop’s Secret Santa project. Here is the next one I painted, with more to come.


Now and again I like to grab a random mini and just paint it. I generally go for a figure I could use in a D&D game.  This stone lurker (Roper) sculpted by Bob Olley has been a favorite of mine and fits the style of D&D games I like. Weird.


Secret Santa painting project 2016

Wow! another year and I’m back to the shop’s secret Santa event (submit a fig & a random person paints it). I thought it was pretty funny that I was assigned a figure from the Gorchosen game, as I’d just picked up the game, to submit one of the four figs for my secret Santa entry.

After taking the photos for this fig I realized I had not painted the eyes. They are now complete. Though, as I post this, I realized a forgot to splatter him with Blood for the Blood God to give him the grizzly dripping with blood look. I’ll add that later!



I have more Gorechosen figs to post later. I’ll also post my secret Santa fig when I get it back in January.

General T. Clancy

I painted this mini up for a Street Fighter RPG game this summer. This is a character I’ve played since SF was originally released.  Clancy is a lunitic who believes aliens are real and they gave him powers best used in street fights. What a nutter.




D&D Wizard

I’m playing a Wizard in an up-coming D&D  Curse of Strahd campaign. This figure is from the Dark Sword range. I really like this range cause the figures are based off of art from original D&D artists.

Starter Game Table

My Nephew has been playing 40k with his buddies. Figuring everyone who starts playing miniature games starts out with a shit table of terrain, I thought I try to start him off right.

Scenery is by Rob Metzner who sells very affordable terrain at the local cons.




The mat was green felt bought at the fabric store then sponge painted by my wife. I though the results were fantastic!
